  • Depending on the indicator used, it is hard to get the exact point of neutralisation - might over shoot.
  • Might miss read on the scale - looking at it at an odd angle.
  • Not filling up the tap of the burette

Hope this helps

you can also mention paralax. this is to do with human error. if you try to take measurements like vertically you are more likely to rake incorrect measurements than if you were to take the measurements looking horizontally and taking measurements.
